Changed the product
I have been using the product for years, it's one of two moisturizers I can use (without having a negative reaction). I bought a new bottle, and put it on after a shower as always, except this time it burned, turned my skin bright red, and caused an allergic reaction. Comparing the old and new bottle, the new bottle no longer says 'paraben free' and looking at the ingredients list, a few of the ingredients have changed. Nivea is quick to advertise a 'new look' or '25% free' but seems to not think it's important to let customers know they've changed the formulation of their product? I did talk to a nivea customer representative, who verified the product is no longer paraben free, and it's composition has been modified.
It also has a different smell (more chemically) and leaves a residue on hands. I would have given the old version 5 stars and recommended it to everyone I know, but this new version I would stay away from and really does not uphold the nivea standard of quality.

One late night, I could not find my make up remover anywhere. I had a little panic because all I wanted was to go to sleep! I saw the lotion in my bathroom, and knew it had mineral oil so I slathered it on my face quick, and it removed all of my make up in a second. Even the heavy eye make up! It doesn't sting the eyes like I thought it would, and has not caused me to break out. Now I continue to use it on my body, and on my face as a make up remover and night moisturizer because it's left my skin feeling smooth, and glowing. I just love it!. It's also solved my sister's long problem with her dry face. Everyone and anyone can use this product.

Only lotion I use
Never have I ever found a lotion as good as this one. I love the clean smell and the moisture it gives my skin. Unfortunately my local store no longer sells the Original Moisture. No other lotion I have tried (including other Nivea products) have lived up to original moisture's smell, feel, and effectiveness. I highly recommend this product if you wish to actually see a difference in the way your skin looks and feels

I've been using Nivea Original Moisture since I was a young girl living at home. My sisters & I loved the smell. It's the only lotion I've stayed with over the years after trying many. The scent is my favorite & the moisturizing effect outdoes all the others.

Nothing else comes close!
I've been using Nivea Original for a long time. I recall getting ready to go to work in NYC one morning , when I put some on my hands as usual. Looking a little pale and tired, I rubbed some on my face as well. Heading out, I couldn't believe the difference. Suddenly I looked though I'd just come in from playing volleyball at the beach for a couple of hours, and it had this fantastic glow. Thanks Nivea!
